The best social media PSAs from around the world

by Shareen Pathak

Google+ Hangouts - Same sex marriage

Google +'s technologies can change people's lives and help society progress. We promoted Google +'s most iconic & differentiating feature, Google Hangouts : a unique technology allowing 10 people to be on a video call simultaneously. We wanted to put Google +'s hangouts at the service of a greater cause - the most debated issue in France at the time: same-sex marriage. We partnered with the association "Tous Unis Pour l'Egalité" and created the first social same-sex marriage. We made it possible for French gay couples to get married in France via Hangout, with a Mayor from Belgium where same-sex marriage is law. The ceremony was witnessed online by family and friends and broadcasted live on YouTube for the whole world to see. These first social same-sex weddings gave a new venue for thousands of French gay couples to be heard and to speak out about their rights. We helped the debate progress in France by giving a voice to the many supporters of marriage equality. Since we did this operation, the law is passed in France. It's now possible for same sex couples to marry in France. But we still have a long way to go as we take this initiative further than France. If your country is still deliberating the Bill and the Law is not yet passed, please be in touch with us : mariage@tousunispourlegalite.com and we will marry you, from France, live on the Internet via Google Hangouts. --------------------------------------------------------- Google+ peut changer la vie des gens et aider la société à avancer. Nous avons donc souhaité promouvoir la plus iconique des technologies Google+, Google Hangouts : une technologie unique permettant jusqu'à dix personnes d'être ensemble sur la même vidéo conférence. Nous avons utilisé le Hangouts de Google+ en faveur d'une grande cause, un débat qui faisait rage en France à ce moment là : le mariage de personnes du même sexe. Nous avons fait en sorte de pouvoir marier des couples homosexuels en France, via Google Hangouts, par un maire Belge où le mariage de personnes du même sexe est légal. Les amis et les familles ont pu être témoins de ces unions, diffusées live sur Youtube, aux yeux du monde entier. Ces premiers mariages sociaux de même sexe donnèrent l'opportunité à des milliers de couples homosexuels français d'être entendus, et de pouvoir parler de leurs droits. Nous pensons avoir modestement participé à la progression du débat en France, en donnant une voix à ceux qui soutenaient le mariage pour tous. Depuis cette opération, la loi en France a été votée. Il est donc désormais possible pour les couples de même sexe de se marier en France. Mais nous souhaitons désormais étendre cette opération aux pays dans lesquels la loi est toujours en débat, et n'est donc pas encore passée. Contactez-nous : mariage@tousunispourlegalite.com, et nous vous marierons, depuis la France, via Google Hangouts. ---------------------------------------------------------

  • Tinder Is Full of Robot Prostitutes

    valleywag.gawker.com - 8 readers - I moved back to New York from Cairo in January of 2014, and among the biggest culture shocks was American Tinder. In Cairo, there was the occasional woman, mostly Russian tourists on holiday, using the mobile dating app; in New York, I met a torrent of instant flirtation. Patterns emerged: apparently almost every woman under 30 in this city "Lov...
